The new Marie Claire has a fashion story called Made In Italy, The Genius Of Italian Designers, which is a big love letter to Marni, Versace, Valentino, et al. Plus a fun reason to jet to Italy, hire Italian male models and just generally live the life of a fashion editor, we suspect. The photographs, by Neil Kirk, are beautiful, and we're insanely jealous of the entire thing, which is why we mock. We tease because we love, that's amore! After the jump, we write the captions Marie Claire editors left out. Ciao!
